CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED “PLAY ON TOUR” ADDS MORE SHOWS

Nashville – February 9, 2010 – One of country music’s most anticipated tours of 2010, the Carrie Underwood “Play On Tour,” has just announced the addition of more shows this summer due to popular demand. The “Play On Tour,” hydrated by vitaminwater®, will kick off March 11 in Reading, PA at the Sovereign Center, with special guests Craig Morgan and Sons of Sylvia, and is now currently slated to run through June 20 in Saskatoon, SK at the Credit Union Centre.

Underwood’s previous tour, 2008’s highly successful “Carnival Ride Tour,” wrapped after 137 shows with over 1.2 million fans in attendance.

Underwood is a five-time Grammy Award winner, a member of the Grand Ole Opry, the 2009 Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, and three-time CMA and ACM Female Vocalist winner. Carrie Underwood has amassed more than 11 million in U.S. album sales since her debut CD in 2005, more than any other American Idol winner. Along the way, she has consistently broken new ground and became the first country artist in history to achieve eleven consecutive #1 singles.

Craig Morgan is new on the charts with his latest single, “This Ain’t Nothin’,” from his BNA Records album, That’s Why, which also features his recent hits, “Bonfire” and “Love Remembers.” In 2008, Morgan received one of country music’s highest honors – he was inducted into the membership of the Grand Ole Opry. Morgan has made more than 150 appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, and plays over 200 sold-out concerts a year. He spent ten years on active duty in the U.S. Army before launching his music career, and makes a point to perform as often as possible at U.S. military installations both in the U.S. and abroad.

Sons of Sylvia are currently finishing up their debut album release on 19 Recordings/Interscope Records due out in 2010. Ashley, Austin, and Adam Clark (formerly known as The Clark Brothers who won FOX’s Next Great American Band) are longtime friends of Underwood, and the band is currently featured on her new album in a powerful collaboration called “What Can I Say.”
